Compatibility with existing Office files and solutions

The 64-bit version of Office 2010 is not compatible with any other 32-bit version of Office programs. As a result, you must first uninstall all 32-bit versions of Office programs before you install the 64-bit version of Office 2010. The Office 2010 disc includes both 32- and 64-bit versions of Office 2010. To install 64-bit Office 2010, you must run Setup.exe from the x64 folder. For more information, see Install the 64-bit version of Office.

  • ActiveX controls library, ComCtl Any solutions that use these controls do not work. No good alternatives are available for some of these controls.
  • Third-party ActiveX controls and add-ins None of these work with the 64-bit version of Office.

Note There is no 64-bit version of Visual Basic 6. As a result, many of these objects need to be ported and rewritten.

  • Visual Basic for Applications The only way that Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) that contains the Declare statement work in the 64-bit version of Office is if you update the code manually.
  • Compiled Access databases The .MDE and .ACCDE files, a common way for Access application developers to distribute solutions and protect their intellectually property, do not work in the 64-bit version of Office. You must contact the application vendor to have the vendor recompile, retest, and redistribute the solution in the 64-bit version.
  • Communicator integration If you install the 64-bit version of Office, certain Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 features that involve integration with Outlook are lost. For example, you cannot right-click a Communicator contact to schedule a meeting, send an e-mail message, or find previous conversations. This is because Office Communicator R2 is 32-bit, and Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) calls do not cross the 32-/64-bit boundary.

Additionally, certain Microsoft Outlook 2010 features are unavailable with Communicator R2. For more information about these Outlook features and the hotfix that addresses them, see the following Knowledge Base article:

You cannot see features in Office 2010 builds if you are running Communicator 2007 R2 RTM or earlier versions

For optimal Communicator R2 performance, make sure that you have the latest version by visiting the Communicator download page at Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2 Trial Download.
